Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is the sixth book of J. K. Rowling's series, and Harry is now 16 and becoming a young man. Ron, Hermione, and he are in their sixth year at Hogwarts, moving into more complicated classes and finding love and attraction with the opposite sex. Lord Voldemort and his Death-Eaters are wreaking so much havoc that it's spilling over to the muggle world and the Prime Minister is notified of the situation. Harry is aware of the prophecy that he is the chosen one to take on Voldemort, and his life takes on a darker and dangerous tone as everyone expects that prophecy to be fulfilled. To make matters worse, the Defense Against the Dark Arts instructor is not one of Harry's liking. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has received glowing reviews with the Associated Press saying, "Rowling's latest has lost none of the charm, intelligence and hilarity that have catapulted her series into publishing history. But this book also has a poignancy, complexity and sadness we probably couldn't have imagined when we started reading the first one. There's an emotional punch you won't believe."
